The annual Community Christmas Greeting Project, sponsored by Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center Auxiliary, encourages area residents to support scholarships instead of sending holiday cards locally.

The hospital auxiliary started the project about 40 years ago to provide people with an opportunity to send greetings to local friends and family and at the same time help the hospital.

This year’s project is under way, with donation boxes at the hospital, Collegiate Peaks Bank, Pueblo Bank & Trust and High Country Bank’s branches on U.S. 50 and downtown.

Donors are asked to contribute the amount of money they would have spent on Christmas cards and postage for local friends and family.

Their greetings will be published in The Mountain Mail and broadcast on KVRH radio, and their donations will go to the HRRMC Scholarship Fund.

Checks are preferred and should be made out to HRRMC Auxiliary. Participants should sign envelopes in the way they would normally sign their local Christmas cards. For example: “John Smith,” “Merry Christmas from the Smith family” or some other brief greeting.

Final pickup of the envelopes will be at noon Thursday.
